Event Details

You are invited to Puntcon, the fifteenth great geek punt picnic, taking place on or about the River Cam on the afternoon of Sunday 30th June 2019.

Full details are here on Eventbrite. There’s a Facebook event, too, for those who want it.

Although it says there are 250 tickets that is 'nominal' as it's a big river... but Eventbrite needed a number :-)

How it Works:

As before, turn up outside The Mill public house on Mill Lane between 1200 and 1230.

We will head off  between 1230 and 1300 – if you are late you can walk up river and catch us as we don’t punt very fast!  We will be heading upriver rather than along the Backs – more picnic places, fewer tourists. We normally stop half-way along Grantchester Meadows and hum Pink Floyd tunes.

Bring something to drink and something to eat. Actually, bring a lot to eat and a lot to drink – it’s thirsty work!

Note that there aren’t any toilets (but there are hedges) - the nearest pub/tea room is approx 20 min walk)

We normally get back to Scudamores around 1800. Those heading back to the railway station can be dropped at a bridge within walking distance.

Post punting we have the option of retiring to the pub or a restaurant and letting Sunday evening happen around us.


How Much

You will be asked to contribute your share of the punt hire. There is no registration fee. Bring food and drink and entertainment. Punt fare will be split between all comers –  it works out at twenty pounds per person. Infants are not expected to contribute.

The Invitees

Please feel free to invite other people – it’s a big river and there are lots of punts. This page is here to give us a rough idea of numbers in advance (so please book).

Some idea of who's coming is available via the facebook (unfortunately, other platforms aren’t really available, yet). Reserve your spot in a punt via eventbrite below:
